"So lucky to have friends like these..."
Otherness is a celebration of unlikely connections and close friendships that have developed over the last decade between Barossa Restaurateur Grant Dickson and local South Australian winemakers. Chance encounters, shared enthusiasms and a willingness to embrace new, perhaps untried possibilities within a region often unfairly stereotyped for producing only richly styled wine.
The Otherness project is always respectful of the Barossa’s status quo. It has no mandate to alter the region’s viticultural or winemaking landscape. The collaborating winemakers’ own projects are often representative of the best of the traditional winemaking practices that continue to draw enthusiastic visitors to our region; wine enthusiasts hungrily collect the wines that they release under their own labels.
